Warner Brothers Does Some Throttling Of Its Own

Clearly, someone at Warner Brothers was unhappy looking at Netflix’s Upcoming DVD releases that we just blogged about.

As per AllthingsD’s Peter Kafka, Warner Brothers is going to make rental companies like Blockbuster and Redbox wait another 4 weeks more than they do today to rent out DVDs of Warner Bros movies. In other words double the delay time between the day a DVD goes on sale to the day it becomes available to rent on DVD from Netflix to 56 days or 8 weeks!

Warner Bros. believes this will boost revenues from DVD sales.

Why not just go further and make the delay 108 weeks? Clearly at that point, DVD sales will just shoot through the roof? And please no one write to Warner and tell them about this new-fangled series of tubes people are calling the ‘Internet’. That’s never going to go anywhere.

 

New and Upcoming DVD Releases From Netflix

In the past, we’ve shown you on FeedFliks, a list of new DVDs Netflix releases each Monday. We’ve improved this page and made it a little more ‘futuristic’ and are now showing you what titles Netflix plans to make available on DVD the next Monday and the next and so on… The page is Netflix New Releases and looks like this:

At the top you’ll see the titles Netflix made available this past Monday and further down a chronological list of upcoming DVD titles. Netflix *does* show the date a title  becomes available on DVD in your DVD Queue, but they usually stick to just the next week or so. Well, now you can see them up to 3 months out. Not every single title will be shown on this page – just the ones Netflixers have expressed interest in by adding them to their DVD Queues.

Now go ahead and add them to your DVD Queue via FeedFliks!
